Exploring opportunities through HBCU Connect—worthwhile for high school students?

I just stumbled upon something called HBCU Connect and saw they have job opportunities, a magazine, and even scholarships. I’m a high school junior exploring my options, and I’m trying to figure out how legit this is. Has anyone here used HBCU Connect to find scholarships or prep for college? Would love to hear your experiences!

I'm glad to see you're taking the initiative to explore resources like HBCU Connect! I've known students who found HBCU Connect to be a valuable platform, especially for those interested in historically black colleges and universities. The site provides a unique space for students to find scholarships pertinent to HBCUs, networking opportunities, and internships.

It’s certainly a legitimate resource for students like you who are beginning to prepare for the college transition. To make the most out of it, I recommend creating a profile and checking it regularly for updates on scholarships and other opportunities that could align with your interests and college goals.

Also, look for any virtual events or college fairs they might offer, which can be great avenues to connect with admissions representatives and current students. If you're interested in attending an HBCU, this could be a particularly useful tool in your college search and preparation. Do keep an active eye on dead-lines and ensure to vet any opportunities you find, just as you would with any online resource.
